One of the best things about living in Portland Oregon, is the mind blowing hikes in and around the City. They range from incredibly challenging to blissfully soothing, and all hikes end with the peace of mind that only the great outdoors can offer.
Tryon Creek is a lush, wooded reminder of the thick vegetation that once cloaked the SW hills of the Portland Area. Walking paths, bike and horse trails are within the sprawling forest which is centered on a web of scenic creeks.
Located off Highway 26 towards Seaside, Saddle Mountain is a dramatic rocky butte in timber country. A not too steep hike with panoramic views. The perfect way to introduce kids to a lifetime of outdoor adventure.
A fantastic choice to see what makes the Northern Oregon Coast such a unique destination. With an old military bunker, an occasionally submerged lighthouse and grand ocean views, you too can walk the same trail Clark & Sacajawea took.
The most iconic mountain in Oregon comes with one of the most Challenging multi-day hikes in the state. This is a 39.8 mile trail that circles Mt Hood and offers a 360 panorama of NW Oregon & S Washington. An excellent long weekend summer escape from the city.
